:: browsing through the Florentine leather shop down the street from the cafe where she and Lexy had lunch ::
Lexy Wright 08-Jul-2020 21:12:26
:: at the counter, trying on gloves made of buttery-soft leather ::
Emily Acacia 08-Jul-2020 21:12:54
:: sits in her grandmother's house with the other island-goers. They'd been introduced to Emily's grandmother, Keliara Akosai, on the second day. She's in the process of making them breakfast yet again, a delicious puff pastry with native berry filling. ::
Doc Navarro 08-Jul-2020 21:13:27
:: finds Emily's abuela to be absolutely charming, and eagerly waits for the food ::
Ryleigh Grey 08-Jul-2020 21:13:34
:: is sitting, watching the preparations of breakfast as Ethan was quite easily sleeping in, he wanted to. ::
Kuari 08-Jul-2020 21:14:25
:: lies on the floor of Emily's grandmother's house, happy and content, sniffing the air occasionally ::
Kate Harper 08-Jul-2020 21:14:53
:: finds a set of gloves and brings them to the counter :: Lexy: What do you think of these?
Emily Acacia 08-Jul-2020 21:14:58
:: grins, checking the time frequently. She lets the others take their batches of pastries first, the berry-puffs coming out in small batches as they finish cooking. ::
Kate Harper 08-Jul-2020 21:15:29
:: tries on one of them and finds it to be a good fit, and her eyes roll back a bit at how soft the leather is as she holds up her hand for Lexy to see ::
Emily Acacia 08-Jul-2020 21:16:00
All: So, our tribe actually isn't hosting the campfire this cycle. Which means the first half of our day is a bit of a walk--or we could take bikes, depending on the mood.
Lexy Wright 08-Jul-2020 21:16:07
Suzuki> :: finds it strange to be on the same schedule as other people, but sits quietly and respectfully in a corner ::
Doc Navarro 08-Jul-2020 21:16:30
:: grabs a couple of berry puffs from the latest batch and takes one over to Jester ::
Lexy Wright 08-Jul-2020 21:17:14
Suzuki> :: takes it with a nod of gratitude :: Zorro: Thank you.
Doc Navarro 08-Jul-2020 21:17:55
:: settles down next to her to eat his berry puff ::
Kuari 08-Jul-2020 21:17:58
:: gets up and waits her turn to take her on breakfast items, then moves to the table and sits on the floor next to a chair ::
Lexy Wright 08-Jul-2020 21:18:19
Kate: Oh, those are gorgeous. How do you feel about these? :: shows off the pair of elbow-length gloves she is wearing, the leather like a second skin ::
Ryleigh Grey 08-Jul-2020 21:18:22
:: takes a couple of berry puffs, listening to Acacia’s explanation. :: Acacia: If it’s not an issue, do you think I can do a quick... workout before we leave? I don’t like sitting around.
Emily Acacia 08-Jul-2020 21:18:42
Keliara Akosai> All: You kids brought things to barter with, right? :: the Betazoid elder asked, reminding the travelers that Emily had warned them they should bring "some interesting things to trade" before they left. ::
Doc Navarro 08-Jul-2020 21:19:10
:: nods at the abuela, having some things from home in his bag ::
Kate Harper 08-Jul-2020 21:19:38
Lexy: They are absolutely divine! This leather is the best I have ever seen!
Ryleigh Grey 08-Jul-2020 21:19:38
:: nods at the older lady, having also brought some things she doesn’t mind bartering away ::
Lexy Wright 08-Jul-2020 21:19:45
Suzuki> :: nods as well, somewhat unsure about the things she brought ::
Emily Acacia 08-Jul-2020 21:20:38
Keliara Akosai> :: she smiles, nodding as they respond :: All: Oh, good. :: she continues cooking, almost all of the pastries done ::
Kuari 08-Jul-2020 21:21:25
:: nods, having brought something of her own, but it's nothing special as she doesn't have much in the way of personal items, and scoops up a pastry whole, enjoying the berries ::
Doc Navarro 08-Jul-2020 21:21:37
:: grins as Kuari glomps the pastry ::
Emily Acacia 08-Jul-2020 21:22:00
All: So we'll head out around noon, until then get dressed and get your things together. Dress to dance! :: Emily warns, grinning ::
Doc Navarro 08-Jul-2020 21:22:16
:: perks up at dance ::
Lexy Wright 08-Jul-2020 21:22:42
Kate: Florence is famous for it, after all! I want these. I don't know what I'll ever wear them with, but I want them.
Sivat 08-Jul-2020 21:22:43
:: Dance? Awh hell naw. Dancing is his older brother’s thing. That, and screaming nonsense into a microphone. ::
Doc Navarro 08-Jul-2020 21:22:54
:: then again, his usual dancing attire probably isn't what she meant ::
Emily Acacia 08-Jul-2020 21:23:13
:: reads Doc's mind and looks right at him, adding :: Doc: In sand.
Ryleigh Grey 08-Jul-2020 21:23:18
:: Dancing? Oh yes please, she hopes that Ethan still remembers how to dance ::
Kuari 08-Jul-2020 21:23:29
:: thinks about what to do while others are dressing, then perks her ears up at dancing ::
Kate Harper 08-Jul-2020 21:23:30
Lexy: That is all the reason you need, love. You could always ride in them. That is what these :: pats the gloves she chose :: are for.
Doc Navarro 08-Jul-2020 21:23:46
:: reconsiders his envisioned clothing ::
Lexy Wright 08-Jul-2020 21:23:46
Suzuki> :: mentally goes through her bags, realizing she brought something perfect ::
Kate: They're far too elegant for that!
Sivat 08-Jul-2020 21:24:05
:: Sivat visibly frowns, and then slouches in a chair ::
Lexy Wright 08-Jul-2020 21:24:16
Kate: Oh, and I also need this belt. And this purse. And those shoes...
Emily Acacia 08-Jul-2020 21:24:18
:: takes the last batch of pastries and stuffs herself, loving her grandmother's cooking ::
Ryleigh Grey 08-Jul-2020 21:24:26
:: recalls all that she had brought, and mentally nods when she remembers the dress that she had brought ::
Kate Harper 08-Jul-2020 21:24:26
Lexy: Oh! I should get something elegant too, you are right!
Emily Acacia 08-Jul-2020 21:24:47
:: glances at Sivat :: Sivat: Don't worry, dancing is just the most.. active activity. You'll see something you like.
Lexy Wright 08-Jul-2020 21:24:51
Suzuki> :: nibbles the pastry, enjoying it immensely ::
Sivat 08-Jul-2020 21:25:28
Acacia: Like what?
Kate Harper 08-Jul-2020 21:25:32
:: wanders away for a bit, getting lost again in leather heaven ::
Kuari 08-Jul-2020 21:25:37
:: frowns to herself that she didn't bring her party wear, always choosing to pack very light when going places ::
Emily Acacia 08-Jul-2020 21:26:18
:: thinks, listing :: Sivat: Trading, Datani are primarily tailors so there will be people there making clothes and selling their clothes. There is the dance, the storytelling, the feast...
Kuari 08-Jul-2020 21:26:40
:: distracts herself by going back for more pastries :: Keliara Akosai: I love these!
Sivat 08-Jul-2020 21:26:54
:: if only there was some 3-D chess ::
Emily Acacia 08-Jul-2020 21:27:25
Keliara Akosai> :: grins, excited to earn praise from the most interesting traveler :: Kuari: Thank you! It is my grandmother's recipe. :: she jokes lightly ::
Lexy Wright 08-Jul-2020 21:28:17
Suzuki> :: also sneaks back over for another ::
Kuari 08-Jul-2020 21:28:18
:: grins and drops another pastry into her mouth on the way back to the table, carrying a second one ::
Emily Acacia 08-Jul-2020 21:28:44
:: finishes her pastries and gets up, looking to her grandmother who has finished cleaning the oven. The two smile knowingly. :: All: Alright, you all can finish these up, we have to get dressed.
:: takes her grandmother's hand, the two making their way into the main bedroom. They leave the door open because they're just braiding their hair, but there is an obvious lull in the time before the group is to set out ::
Kate Harper 08-Jul-2020 21:29:25
:: calls out to Lexy from the dressing room ::
Doc Navarro 08-Jul-2020 21:29:44
:: snatches another pastry ::
Lexy Wright 08-Jul-2020 21:30:05
:: excuses herself from the counter and goes over to the dressing room, still wearing the gloves :: Kate: Yes, love?
Suzuki> Zorro: They are really very good. :: also snatches another before cutting herself off ::
Kate Harper 08-Jul-2020 21:30:55
:: opens the door and is wearing a leather corset :: Lexy : What do you think? :: poses and drops a sultry smile ::
Emily Acacia 08-Jul-2020 21:31:36
:: re-emerges sometime later in a no-stitch green wrap dress. There is gold embroidery in the shape of vines and leaves up the entire right side of the skirt, some feathers and beads and tassels scattered throughout. She has two braids in her hair, both over her right ear. Her grandmother wears something similar but to the max, her dress completely covered by stitching and her left arm nearly covered by dangling beads. ::
Lexy Wright 08-Jul-2020 21:32:37
:: stops dead in her tracks and stares at her wife, a blush rising to her cheeks :: Kate it. :: she squeaks ::
Doc Navarro 08-Jul-2020 21:32:40
:: has changed into a Hawaiian shirt of dark green leaves over gold, since the place reminds him a bit of Hawaii ::
Emily Acacia 08-Jul-2020 21:32:57
:: looks around, assessing her party ::
Kuari 08-Jul-2020 21:33:04
:: finishes her last pastry, then goes outside to drink from the creek ::
Kate Harper 08-Jul-2020 21:33:13
Lexy: I will. :: winks and disappears to get back into her dress ::
Emily Acacia 08-Jul-2020 21:34:00
:: rubs her hands together :: All: Alright, let's get going! :: she chimes, checking the time for the umpteenth time. ::
Lexy Wright 08-Jul-2020 21:34:07
Suzuki> :: exits her room, wearing lace-up sandals and a flowing sundress printed with large sunflowers and carrying a small bag that contains her tradeables ::
Ryleigh Grey 08-Jul-2020 21:34:46
:: has changed into a delicate white-and-blue lacy hawaiian-style dress, Ethan wearing dark blue nice shorts and white shirt, and are ready to go ::
Doc Navarro 08-Jul-2020 21:35:06
:: joins in the party, eager to see if he can learn some new dances ::
Emily Acacia 08-Jul-2020 21:35:21
Keliara Akosai> :: smiles warmly, gestures for the group to follow, then begins leading them down one of the most trodden paths in the jungle. ::
:: spots the noon sun, turning to the party as they walk :: All: Alright, there is one last thing--
Kate Harper 08-Jul-2020 21:35:39
:: reappears, back in her dress, and brings the gloves, a purse, a belt, two pairs of shoes, and an extra pair of gloves to the counter, along with the corset ::
Sivat 08-Jul-2020 21:35:58
:: fidgets his hands as he follows the group ::
Kuari 08-Jul-2020 21:36:01
:: follows and makes sure Emily sees her smile, appreciating her attire ::
Emily Acacia 08-Jul-2020 21:36:05
All: You all will be the first to tell a story at the storytelling tonight, because you are visitors.
Ryleigh Grey 08-Jul-2020 21:36:29
Emily: What kind of story is expected at events like this?
Emily Acacia 08-Jul-2020 21:36:35
All: It can be anything. True or false, but don't go for like.. humpty dumpty, you know?
Doc Navarro 08-Jul-2020 21:36:40
:: ensures that he admires both Emily and Jester equally ::
Emily Acacia 08-Jul-2020 21:36:41
All: Natives prefer a story of your homeland.
Lexy Wright 08-Jul-2020 21:37:15
:: is hastily flipping through to see if there's one that will fit her... ::
Sivat 08-Jul-2020 21:37:17
:: mumbles :: Self: Brilliant.
Ryleigh Grey 08-Jul-2020 21:37:24
:: hums slightly, brain working to figure out what story to tell ::
Emily Acacia 08-Jul-2020 21:37:37
:: nudges Sivat :: Sivat: Land, not family.
Sivat: Picture your favorite forest. That'll do.
Lexy Wright 08-Jul-2020 21:38:06
:: quickly and quietly trying a few things on ::
Kuari 08-Jul-2020 21:38:22
:: listens to Emily, thinking inward of what story she should tell. Stories of her homeland should come easily, but which one should she choose? ::
Kate Harper 08-Jul-2020 21:38:41
:: while casually chatting in Italian with the shopkeeper, she wonders where her wife has disappeared to ::
Sivat 08-Jul-2020 21:38:41
Acacia: I don’t like forests. :: Ah, stubborn 10 year olds. How nice. ::
Ryleigh Grey 08-Jul-2020 21:39:38
Sivat: Tell about your culture, your family, etc. Pretty much anything could be classified as a "story" if you spin it right
Emily Acacia 08-Jul-2020 21:42:05
Kaliara Akosai> :: the old woman leads them through the jungle with a practiced grace, never missing a step. The sky is beginning to turn orange and pink as they emerge into the Datani clearing. There are large, ornate cloth tarps tied up to multiple trees to form various tents, and tables made from jungle wood at every turn. True to the doctor's word it was like a massive cultural festival, with a table featuring every food the island could offer, merchants selling their hand-crafted goods, and people dancing, singing, and playing instruments everywhere you looked. At the center of it all was a campfire with a stage next to it, though there was no one gathered around it and no one using it yet. As the party entered it was hard to miss that lots of people were looking at the visitors, many even approaching with cheerful greetings. ::
Lexy Wright 08-Jul-2020 21:42:58
Suzuki> :: looks at the gathering with wonder in her eyes, but not on her face ::
Doc Navarro 08-Jul-2020 21:42:59
:: takes in the scene, finding it reminiscent of a luau ::
Emily: This looks like it'll be a good time.
Emily Acacia 08-Jul-2020 21:43:45
:: points to the stage :: All: There--gather back to tell your stories at sundown, which should only be a few more minutes. All the food is free, but crafts you have to barter for!
Kuari 08-Jul-2020 21:43:58
:: smiles happily at all the happy people ::
Sivat 08-Jul-2020 21:43:59
Self: Oh. So many people.
Lexy Wright 08-Jul-2020 21:44:28
Suzuki> :: looks at the boy and sort of agrees with him in her mind ::
Emily Acacia 08-Jul-2020 21:44:44
:: smiles at Sivat :: Sivat: There is a quiet corner, if you'd like me to show you. The people there are a bit odd, though, I'll warn you.
Kate Harper 08-Jul-2020 21:45:49
:: finds a black fitted wrap skirt while she waits and adds that to her pile ::
Lexy Wright 08-Jul-2020 21:46:14
:: finally comes out with an armload of things that she uses her body to shield from Kate ::
Sivat 08-Jul-2020 21:46:40
Acacia: Brilliant. :: is now second guessing if he should have come or now :| ::
Lexy Wright 08-Jul-2020 21:47:01
Suzuki> Sivat: It might be interesting.
Ryleigh Grey 08-Jul-2020 21:47:24
:: is looking around, before tugging Ethan off to go towards the crafting area ::
Kate Harper 08-Jul-2020 21:47:27
:: perks an eyebrow, and holds up the skirt and a pair of boots :: Lexy: Look what else I found! This place is amazing!
Emily Acacia 08-Jul-2020 21:48:08
:: smiles, giving Suzuki a look that says she can come too if she likes. She circles around the edge of the campfire and the festival, weaving her way through the merchants to find her way behind them. She has to search for a bit, because this isn't her village, but she eventually finds deep purple tent walls strung up on some of the trees. :: Self: Aha..
Lexy Wright 08-Jul-2020 21:48:22
Kate: I found some things I'll show you... later. In addition to these gloves, this purse, these shoes, those boots...
Kate Harper 08-Jul-2020 21:49:07
:: nods to the shopkeeper, who tallies it all up with a knowing smile, and she settles the balance ::
Lexy Wright 08-Jul-2020 21:49:10
Suzuki> :: thinks a moment, shakes her head, actually heading off toward the storytelling area ::
Kuari 08-Jul-2020 21:49:55
:: quickly gets lost in the overstimulation of the event, wandering through people, being greeted and greeting back, and makes sure to focus on looking at the items around her, to make sure she does her bartering ::
Emily Acacia 08-Jul-2020 21:50:05
:: opens the tent flap to let Sivat in. Inside the lights are dimmer, the air lighter. The people inside wear purple as well, and each one casts a single sideward glance at him before ignoring him completely. The space has shelves, chairs, a small campfire, some food.. it's like a library, having a quiet party next door to the big one. ::
Lexy Wright 08-Jul-2020 21:50:34
:: arranges to have their purchases sent back to their hotel :: Kate: Hurry, let's go to the Uffizi!
Sivat 08-Jul-2020 21:50:43
:: looks around at all purple :: Acacia: Interesting color choice.
Kate Harper 08-Jul-2020 21:51:34
Lexy: Oh, good idea! Is it near?
Doc Navarro 08-Jul-2020 21:51:56
:: walks along with Jester as he sees Emily playing a bit of hostess, and begins to easily mingle with the assembled people ::
Emily Acacia 08-Jul-2020 21:52:06
:: nods lightly, opening her palm to one of the people and bowing her head, the young man in purple going back to his reading. :: Sivat: Sages of all the tribes wear purple. They are like.. our therapists. The most sensitive among us, they can sense what you need and offer it. :: she smiles lightly :: Honestly I've never seen them ignore someone like this, hah.
Lexy Wright 08-Jul-2020 21:52:28
Kate: Yes, just across the street and up a block! :: grabs Kate's hand, looking at the afternoon sun :: We need to hurry so we have enough time!
Kate Harper 08-Jul-2020 21:53:21
Lexy: Alright! :: as Lexy starts to pull her along :: Lead on! :: grins :: That shop was just... magical!
Lexy Wright 08-Jul-2020 21:53:56
:: nods, trying not to think about it too much, saving the distraction for later :: Kate: I'm glad you liked it!
Sivat 08-Jul-2020 21:54:06
:: Is that... a smile? Yes. The little weirdo is smiling at being ignored ::
Lexy Wright 08-Jul-2020 21:54:55
Suzuki> Zorro: I'm going to step outside of my comfort zone and try to tell a story.
Emily Acacia 08-Jul-2020 21:55:00
:: chuckles, patting him on the back :: Sivat: Well, enjoy. :: she muses, and leaves him there, returning to the campfire. She makes her way towards the stage, chatting with the old woman in blue who sits in a rocking chair at the end of the stage. ::
Doc Navarro 08-Jul-2020 21:55:17
:: raises both eyebrows :: Jester: Please do! I definitely want to hear it.
Kate Harper 08-Jul-2020 21:55:39
:: also picked up a little something extra that she kept as a surprise :: Lexy: Great choice. Now, the Uffizi!
Sivat 08-Jul-2020 21:56:04
:: begins to look around the tent ::
Emily Acacia 08-Jul-2020 21:57:10
:: the sage's tent is lit with glowing blue crystals, the top open to the sky so each library shelf has its own water protection built in. These people seem dedicated to knowledge and study. ::
Kuari 08-Jul-2020 21:57:19
:: doesn't find anything she wishes to trade for yet, but notices that it's almost sundown and makes her way to the storytelling area ::
Emily Acacia 08-Jul-2020 21:57:39
:: looks around, waiting for the others to arrive. The old woman sits next to her, and a few tribesmen in blue begin to approach the stage as well. ::
Sivat 08-Jul-2020 21:58:08
Self: Oooh. :: gravitates towards the library shelves, turning his head to the Awkward Book Title Reading Angle™️ ::
Emily Acacia 08-Jul-2020 21:59:26
:: six people walk onto the stage, each wearing blue, which seems to be the hosts' color as it is worn by most people there. The old woman raises a hand, and a crowd begins gathering at the seats in front of the storytelling stage. ::
Ryleigh Grey 08-Jul-2020 22:00:19
:: moves to rejoin her friends, Ethan settling down to watch ::
Doc Navarro 08-Jul-2020 22:00:21
:: takes a seat, quite interested in seeing this ::
Kuari 08-Jul-2020 22:00:51
:: finds a spot to sit next to the chairs and watches the stage ::
Lexy Wright 08-Jul-2020 22:01:04
Suzuki> :: sits next to Zorro ::
Emily Acacia 08-Jul-2020 22:01:39
:: takes a deep breath. The six people on stage line up at the back, they are in pairs, a young boy and girl, a man and a woman in their twenties, and an old man and woman. The grandmother looks up at Emily, then lights a long wooden pipe she is holding. ::
:: smiles, stepping forward and taking a quick bow. The old woman blows smoke onto the stage, and it swirls up under Emily's feet. :: Crowd: Hello, everyone. I am Emilaina Akosai, I have brought visitors who are my shipmates in Starfleet.
Lexy Wright 08-Jul-2020 22:03:24
:: moves through the Uffizi with Kate for the rest of the afternoon, looking at countless famous and priceless works of art ::
Kuari 08-Jul-2020 22:03:32
:: smiles, listening to Emily ::
Doc Navarro 08-Jul-2020 22:03:52
:: clasps Jester's hand and settles in to listen ::
Kate Harper 08-Jul-2020 22:04:38
:: falls in love with Earth's culture all over again, much like she did when she moved here to go to the Academy ::
Emily Acacia 08-Jul-2020 22:04:42
:: closes her eyes for a moment and then reopens them as the old woman blows another puff of smoke, the vague image of Atlantis showing in the mist behind her, as she had pictured it. She looks down at her friends, holding out a hand towards the stage's stairs :: All: Who's first?
Lexy Wright 08-Jul-2020 22:04:56
Suzuki> :: looks down at her hand with mild surprise ::
Kuari 08-Jul-2020 22:05:46
:: marvels at the image in the smoke, then looks around for her friends to see if anyone is volunteering ::
Emily Acacia 08-Jul-2020 22:07:02
:: looks between them, noting their nerves. She chuckles, then says something to the elder on stage in a language that doesn't translate. ::
:: holds up her hands, suddenly adopting a very dramatic, over-the-top style :: All: Twenty thousand years ago...
:: a hush falls over the crowd. A few older people chuckle. ::
Kate Harper 08-Jul-2020 22:07:41
:: with a happy sigh :: Lexy: This is all so impressively beautiful, and I could look at it all night. But... is it not about time for dinner?
Ryleigh Grey 08-Jul-2020 22:07:46
:: looks down, not wanting to go first, before straightening at Acacia's story-starting
Doc Navarro 08-Jul-2020 22:07:56
:: raises an eyebrow at the twenty thousand years ago part ::
Emily Acacia 08-Jul-2020 22:08:09
:: the image of the island, stormy and turbulent appears behind her :: All: The first visitors arrived on the island.
Kuari 08-Jul-2020 22:08:20
:: directs her attention, having spotted several of her friends in the gathering, to the stage as Emily performs ::
Doc Navarro 08-Jul-2020 22:08:24
:: settles when he sees it's about this island ::
Emily Acacia 08-Jul-2020 22:08:40
:: there is a loud crack, then the image of a ship cracked in half over an island. The young man and woman step out of the smoke, looking around as if they're lost. ::
Lexy Wright 08-Jul-2020 22:09:34
Kate: Can you wait a little longer? There's a few more things I want to see first... :: the couple finally leave the Uffizi, cross the Ponte Vecchio and buy a few things at the jewelry shops there, then find themselves at the Galleria dell'Accademia to see the David ::
Kate Harper 08-Jul-2020 22:10:05
Lexy: Yes, definitely. :: is sporting a new pair of earrings ::
Emily Acacia 08-Jul-2020 22:10:09
All: They were found by the natives, and given a cloak of thorns. :: she gestures, and the young woman looks down with an excited grin as smoke drapes her shoulders. It appears to be woven thorns, exactly like the necklaces they were given when they landed, just big enough to cover the torso ::
Lexy Wright 08-Jul-2020 22:10:40
:: looks up at the David :: Kate: It's... bigger than I expected!
Emily Acacia 08-Jul-2020 22:11:12
All: The next day, a roschi attacked! :: she starts, a fang-toothed rodent jumping out of the smoke at the audience. There is a gasp from the children, then a chuckle from the adults ::
Kate Harper 08-Jul-2020 22:11:22
